Australian pacer Jason Behrendorff is raring to go in IPL 2021 and is putting in the hard yards in Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) training session. He has completed his mandatory quarantine but is yet to play a game for CSK so far this season.
CSK recently shared a video of Jason Behrendorff on Twitter where he could be seen putting in the work to get back to match fitness. The 30-year-old went unsold at the IPL mini-auction earlier this year.
However, after Josh Hazlewood pulled out of IPL 2021 due to bubble fatigue, CSK roped him as a replacement for his compatriot. Behrendorff, in the video uploaded by CSK, said revealed he was glad to be back in training for the MS Dhoni-led side.
“I always take a little bit of time to get moving again, but I’m feeling good now. I’m feeling pretty close to match the intensity and everything is starting to go well. It’s nice to be training and I’m starting to get my body moving again, I feel really good,” he said.
This will be Jason Behrendorff’s second stint in the IPL as he was a part of the Mumbai Indians team, which had pipped CSK to the title in 2019. He, however, played just 5 games that season for the five-time champions.
It will be interesting to see whether he’ll make the playing XI for the game against his former side, MI, on Saturday. CSK are currently top of the points table with 5 wins and a defeat.
